CSG TechSee


CSG TechSee enables call center agents to resolve issues through direct, web-based interactions with subscribers and field staff and reduce expensive on-site support calls.


TechSee technology allows customers to share a video or photos with customer support representatives. Augmented Vision Support technology provides the contact center with a solution to quickly visually connect with the customers' physical environment while they are on the call via their smartphone camera. This allows the agent to see the problem, diagnose the issue, and show the customer what to do visually, using augmented reality technology, from their desktop environment.


TechSee Live Contact Center enables smooth transformation, efficient service, and optimal customer experience that keeps customers satisfied and enhances operational efficiencies. The solution is simple to operate, and works across different smartphones, mobile operating systems, and browsers. No software installation or application downloads are required.
